London Philharmonic Orchestra & The Glyndebourne Chorus,, Maurizio Benini (conductor) & Annabel Arden (director)

Acclaimed Italian conductor Maurizio Benini makes his Glyndebourne debut in Donizetti's intoxicating and deeply touching opera, whose fast-moving comic story unfolds the romantic rivalry between penniless farmhand and bumptious soldier, both vying for the love of Adina. Will the bogus Dr Dulcamara's potion – the elixir of love – help farmhand Nemorino win her heart? Peter Auty takes the role of Nemorino with Ekaterina Siurina as Adina. Recorded in High Definition and true surround sound.

"It is a beautifully achieved piece of work. ... Peter Auty's Nemorino is world-class in his vocal accomplishment and touching presentation of the character's plight. Alfredo Daza sounds exactly the right notes of God's gift to women bumptiousness and fundamental decency with his good-looking, healthy sounding Sergeant Belcore. Luciano Di Pasquale hits the spot as the fake potion seller Dulcamara, bringing colour and vivacity to his every appearance. The chorus are marvellous. Maurizio Benini maintains lively music-making in the pit.” The Stage
